. >> bill: all right. so once again, mr. obama didn't explain what happened on 9/11 in libya. once again he said his administration is investigating. but so much, so much misinformation has been but the out there by the obama administration you would think that six weeks after the attack some kind of clarity could be put forth by the president he doesn't have to do it because the press is not pushing him. brian williams, one of the few journalists mr. obama is talking with, had a chance to ask him some tough questions, mr. williams passed. >> the assessment of your intelligence community as we stand here is that it was a spontaneous terrorist attack. were you happy with what you were able to learn as it unfolded? it went on for several hours. >> well, as i have said, brian, we're going to do a full investigation, obviously when four americans are killed, you know, you have to do some soul searches in terms of making sure that all our systems are where they need to be. and that's what we're going to find out. but, who what i'm confident about is that we will be able to figure out who perpetr
we know right now. president obama has declared states of emergency in several mid atlantic and northeastern states including maryland, new jersey, new york and connecticut. fema, the federal emergency management agency established emergency operations centers in those places to coordinate preparations and disaster relief. >>> hurricane sandy knocked out electricity to more than 5,000 customers in new jersey so far. officials warn that number will grow into the hundreds of thousands. >>> sandy is being blamed for 65 deaths in the caribbean, 51 in haiti where residents endured three days of constant rain. >>> just this morning, a 17-man crew was forced to abandon the hms bounty after getting caught in sandy's high seas off the coast of carolina. the coast guard says the members safely boarded two life rafts. >>> this storm is shaping up to be a travel nightmare. nearly 7,500 flights canceled in the northeast while amtrak suspended service in the northeast corridor. the show must go on for comedians jimmy fallon, jimmy kimmel. they're both saying they'll go ahead with tapings
? and right now, six weeks, we're not getting -- we're getting stonewalled. his answers, barack obama's answers are stonewalled. and all i do is break it down. he he has got to know as i said in the talking points, who told carney and rice to say what they say. he has to know. wait a minute, have you been in this business a long time, okay? all right. is there any excuse for that question not being asked by two highly paid news people, schieffer and williams? any excuse? >> why wasn't it asked by governor mitt romney. >> bill: we already run into that. >> romney -- he is the president with all due respect. who gave these officials these marching orders. >> bill: romney has his own reasons for not asking it but it's the job of schieffer and williams to ask it and they didn't. >> three things. number one, there is a legitimate scandal on why there wasn't more security for the ambassador in benghazi. why the intelligence failed to predict that this militia was going to carry out a deadly attack. that's one scandal. then there is the attack itself. i think it's going to be very very diffi
obama during his administration. have you been very kind to him, all right? is there any excuse in the world for the president at this point in time not answering fundamental questions about this situation? not holding a press conference and answering fundamental questions? >> we are 10 days from what everyone is calling. >> bill: are you going to make an excuse for him. >> we are 10 days from what everyone is calling the most important election of our time. do you realistically believe for example the house oversight committee for the republicans would be requesting truth justice in the american way we are seeking political points. it is a very difficult time. what we he answer at the press conference. >> bill: well, he knows. >> is he going to tell the cia's mission in libya? >> no. is he going to say this is who told jay carney this. this is who told susan rice. this this is what i think happened there heads are going to roll. >> i spoke with three republic senators yesterday, including senator jim inhofe the republic of oklahoma who said the senate foreign relations committe
like to set the country right side up. they understand president obama has been the leader in turning this country around, so much so that its growth and job creation keeps going up and up. they like to see an optimistic approach to government. that's what president obama has. they're also big believers in education. for a candidate like mitt romney who wants to abolish the department of education, we think we have a greater message for the independents, for women. we certainly are protecting women's health care. those are issues the independents are interested in. as well as the economy. who are they going to choose? someone who sides with sort of the antiquated views of abolishing or eliminated planned parenthood and attacking women's health care or look to someone who believes in embracing all of america. that's an optimistic view. we're optimistic and working hard and we really believe that nments along with those who are champions of president obama's cause will come to recognize that america is greater when we're united together. that's how the vote will turn out on november 6th
't think obama plus four is the right number in ohio and here is why. >> bill: what was your number by the way? >> we had it tied. 47, 47. suffolk listed all the candidates on the ballots. a couple of things of on those polls that i noticed. number one cuyahoga county was weighted at 13%. the truth about cuyahoga county from 2004 to 2008 the total votes cast in ohio went up 100,000 if you add up all the candidates but in cuyahoga county, between 2004 and 2008 which was a big year for barack obama, cuyahoga county casted less ballots in the election in 2008 than 2004. the relative strength of cuyahoga has dropped to 11% north 13%. >> bill: that's very favorable to barack obama. that's the cleveland area. so, if they are weighting that in a heavy way. >> at 13% instead of 11%. >> bill: it's reality that the vote is dropping there. it's going to be better for romney. >> true. >> bill: do you trust rasmussen, larry? you are pretty outspoken about these polls. remember, scott was on it the last time and the time before that scott hit it right between the eyes. >> no, i know scott quite w
if there is a big development that allows romney or obama to advance their argument. right now the simplest way to analyze the election, 50% obama, 50% romney and the swing states basically tied. that is simplyification. ashley: what is interesting last month's jobs report was so anomalous. the numbers didn't make a lot of sense. there were a let f internal contradictions on the jobs report this one could go either way. months ago we saw no discernable effect on this race. i think the economic narrative in both directions is set in concrete. i don't expect this to change that. ashley: lastly, monica, to me i can't believe there are any undecideds out there. cheryl: me, too. i don't get it. >> doug? >> i have problems with both candidates. ashley: maybe. doug, we found one. >> that makes some sense. ashley: moye point, it is jobs of both candidates to be gaffe free? not play terrible mistakes? >> you're correct. the you will find the last couple days of any presidential election, play it safe. don't do any risky interviews. they want to get through election days. i remember working for presiden
right. let's go to virginia. the latest "washington post" poll has president obama clinging to a four-point lead. last month it was an eight-point difference. shall we go to ohio? >> i want to talk about virginia for a second. mark, republicans got some good news in the form of an ohio poll we're about to put up. but couldn't really enjoy that because this "washington post" poll showing a four-point lead in virginia, that's just as bad news for republicans as the ohio poll was good news. >> i thought for a while that people were overly assuming virginia and thinking romney couldn't win ohio. in some ways ohio is a better state for him. virginia has all the big groups that are the president's base, younger voters, african-american, suburban women. i think the romney campaign might have to start thinking about a path with ohio but without virginia which is doable, but it does involve winning another big state or two to make up for that loss. >> that's what i was going to ask you. as you look at that electoral map, we've always said you've got to win ohio. ohio's going to decide it. but
for president obama. that's great, right? >> it is a fine endorsement. jon meacham, you're an historian. have you heard of an endorsement of a candidate that goes on to read this way? if the 1994 or 2003 version of mitt romney were running for president, i may well have voted for him. because like so many other independents, i have found the past four years to be, in a word, disappointing. >> wait. >> so i don't know that there's going to be a big photo op or a big appointment in the offing. but that's the bloomberg brand. >> that's kind of why we love him. >> it's why having $25 billion is, you know -- >> liberating. >> a sense of self-confidence. he's matured in office. he's evolved, as we say. you know, he's picked theories of national and international issues, whether it's guns or climate change he's been working on for a long time. and it's a classic bloomberg thing. i think it's safe to say that mayor bloomberg believes in his heart of hearts that the best possible president would be mayor bloomberg. but that is not going to happen. >> no. >> and so he does take this data-driven analysi
. that's why the money is coming in. that's why obama is really playing hard defense right now. >> larry, two things to watch in pennsylvania. in the west, you have the coal country. they're very irritated about the obama administration's regulations. and in the east, you have the philadelphia suburb philadelphia suburbs. romney is strong with republican voters. if suburban voters flip, romney has a real shot in the keystone state. >> if republicans are always worried about wasteful spending, this is a perfect example of wasteful spending. they don't spend any money in minnesota at all. >> one at a time. >> it's not that long ago. >> 1972 is the last time minnesota voted for a republican. >> i hate to say it, but it was richard nixon. now i've said it. robert costa, i want you to challenge my friend keith boykins. you're saying there's a horse race in michigan, and wisconsin. the numbers in wisconsin look even up. and in iowa, where the liberal des moines register just endorsed romney. so there could be some real midwestern upsets, huh? >> the point in wisconsin is true. keith boykins is
president obama needs to go right now. it reminds me of the stated reason that george w. bush didn't land in new orleans right after hurricane katrina. he didn't want to get in the way of some of the cleanup. of course that disaster response didn't go as well as it looks like president obama is handling the response happening this time. but there is the danger dealing with secret service logistics at a time when regular logistics, just living every day life, becomes incredibly hard. >> i think it's worth pointing out certainly the obama campaign probably didn't imagine the extent. warmth of the words that chris christie has for the president, but mitt romney held his disaster relief event in ohio yesterday. the question that dogged him that he would not answer was about fema. take a listen. >> governor, what should fema's role be? governor, would you eliminate fema if you were president? >> well, it's either 11 or 14 times, depending on whose count you believe. the campaign released a statement saying that romney would not abolish fema but, quote, governor romney believes that states shou
or cable television. you have it right here on current tv, the "full court press." good to have you with us. we have a lot to cover today, including the fact that mitt romney is still accusing president obama of helping chrysler and gm move jobs to china. chrysler says it is a big lie. gm says it is a big lie. the "detroit free press" says it is a big lie. does mitt romney even care about the truth at all? obviously not. we'll get into that and a whole lot more here on the "full court press." but here she is lisa ferguson out in los angeles. >> good morning everyone. mitt romney is headed to florida today to host events with senator marco rubio and jeb bush. he starts off the date in tampa and then heads to coral gables and jacksonville. paul ryan will be campaigning in wisconsin. some are calling the pair's reemergence on the campaign trial after supposedly taking time out out of respect for the hurricane victims. romney's official reason for the event yesterday was to collect donations for storm victims, but it sure looked a lot like a campaign, a big american fla
down south. >> brian: president obama set to tour the damage. the president's request to visit new york city denied. "fox and friends" starts right now. ♪ >> gretchen: good morning, we start with an extreme weather alert. devastation sandy has left behind unimaginable and cities must begin the grueling recovery . the super storm killed 55 men, women and children and first responders. estimates of the physical damage are at 20 billion dollars and the recover will have to wait. eight million people are in the dark and aren't expected to get power back for weeks. hardest hit is new jersey, new york and pennsylvania. meanwhile, the president of the united states asked mayor bloomburg, i would like to take a look at all of the damage and mayor bloomburg had a press conference and said we are flattered by the fact that the president of the united states would like to come and visit us, but not right now and we are really busy and the first responders need to pay to exeem put things back in order. it would be great if the president goes to new jersey and the president will tour the devastati
said, we are back in earnest right now on the campaign trail. president obama will be going to wisconsin, colorado, nevada today. mitt romney in the state of virginia. and of course, joe biden, paul ryan, bill clinton, marco rubio, and many others fanned out across the country right now. as you said, we are in the closing days of this very, very tense campaign. >> it really was a remarkable picture of the president and the new jersey governor, and i think a refreshingly bipartisan picture to a lot of americans. mark preston, live in washington, always great to see you. thanks for being here this morning. at the bottom of the hour, we'll get to analysis of the campaign's final days from our political experts in residents. cnn contributor and republican strategist ana navarro and richard socarides and former senior adviser to president clinton. and in just five days, five days, it will finally be election night in america. cnn's live election coverage will begin at 6:00 p.m. eastern time. >>> and in sandy's aftermath, people in hoboken, new jersey are trapped in a nasty flood.
. and dozens of events by both candidates has been canceled. >> that's right. president obama was here in orlando yesterday, but left before his own rally, to go back and monitor the storm coverage. we're told he stayed abreast of the coverage all day. mainly briefed by his chief homeland security adviser, john brennan. he watched the storm coverage on television, like much of us, throughout the night. he spoke with the governors of the states that were hardest hit. cuomo from new york, christie of new jersey. and also talked to the mayors of new york city and the mayors of jersey city and newark. talked about what they need. in the information he also one of the things we could do would be to expedite the process, by declaring major disaster relief. he'll be briefed again later today and will have a conference call. it seems like the campaign will go back on schedule tomorrow, george. >>> we're getting more scenes of devastation. extraordinary shots. look at that. a large tanker ship washed up on the shores of staten island here in new york city. michelle charlesworth has more on that
candidates has been canceled. >> that's right. president obama was here in orlando yesterday, but left before his own rally, to go back and monitor the storm coverage. we're told he stayed abreast of the situation. he watched the storm coverage on television, like much of us, throughout the night. he spoke with the governors of the states that were hardest hit. cuomo from new york, christie of new jersey. and also talked to the mayors of new york city and atlantic city. talked about what they need. in the information he also one of the things we could do would be to expedite the process, by declaring major disaster relief. he'll have a conference call. eat seems like the campaign will go back on sket tomorrow, george. >>> we're getting more scenes of devastation. a large tanker ship washed up onshore of new york city. michelle charlesworth. power of the storm clearly evident right there. >> reporter: unbelievable. we pulled up. we jumped out of the truck. amy, this is a 700-ton tanker. dates back to 1962, we now know. it's "the john b. caddell." this is the narrows. that's where it came from.
waters can rise in conditions like these. president obama: there's just no quit in america... and you're seeing that right now. over five million new jobs. exports up forty one percent. home values... rising. our auto industry... back. and our heroes are coming home. we're not there yet, but we've made real progress and the... last thing we should do is turn back now. here's my plan for the next four years: making education and training a national priority; building on our manufacturing boom; boosting american-made energy; reducing the deficits responsibly by cutting where... we can, and asking the wealthy to pay a little more. and ending the war in afghanistan, so we can... do some nation-building here at home. that's the right path. so read my plan, compare it to governor romney's... and decide which is better for you. it's an honor to be your president... and i'm asking for your vote... so together, we can keep moving america forward. i'm barack obama and i approve this message. >>> 13 before the top of the hour. as we track sandy, you are looking live at storm team 4 radar. you ca
not until they open or even globex trading because they shut down electronics too. >> that's right, liz. that is the big problem with all this. the reason we've been dropping last couple weeks is uncertainty. now we had a election look like obama was going to win. now mitt romney is surging. we're talking about all day today watching tv with issues with the weather. the bottom line you can't trade like you said for a couple days. uncertainty continues to creep up. until we get through the election we wouldn't be shocked at all volatility downward trend would continuers let's go to gary. gary one of your picks is apple. there was a tremendous downwind on apple before after the earnings and started slightly before the earnings. looks like it will close below 600. would you still with uncertainty the two nontrading days in the work week would you still go for apple on wednesday? >> absolutely. apple is largely unaffected by two days or closure of retail stores. online activity probably remains strong. apple at these prices roughly 10 times next year's earnings we think looks cheap. david:
at this point right now, suzanne, the state of the campaign, president obama was supposed to hold a rally this morning in florida. he did not attend. he came back to washington. governor romney is participating in some campaign events as we speak, but this evening he will not be -- will he cancel his events later this evening. there will be no events tomorrow, suzanne, so, yes, eight days before the election, this sandy has thrown a big wrench to the campaign. >> is there any sense from the obama campaign that this really allows the president to do something that mitt romney can't do, which is look presidential to have a real test of his leadership at a time that is critical to the nation? >> well, you know, suzanne, they won't outwardly say that, but, in fact, this is an opportunity for president obama, i think, to be able to step up and show that he is a leader, and i think that's why we saw governor romney take the action and cancel his campaign events as well. governor romney did pretty well in this last presidential debate, which was about foreign policy, but in many ways that debate
president obama and opponent jim mccain say? we need to raise taxes. that's the right reaction because that would mean fewer jobs. and i want to be real clear. the 200,000 men and women in virge whose jobs are at risk who serve in our armed forces should never be used as a political bargaining chip to race taxes on small business owners. [applause] >> the best way to raise revenues is with a fliving economy where businesses are prossspering and people are getting pay checks not youring about extension of unemployment benefits. so folks there is a lot at stake five days from now. november 6 it is our generation's ran day view with dest any. i believe that the people of virginia here in the richmond area, the central virginia area, especially since we're here at doswell farms where the greatest history resource in all was born. we want to be like secretary i can't and you all are going to lead the way for a triple crown victory where we re-elect our leader eric cantor for a representative. [applause] where with our win in the u.s. senate we change the leadership in the united states sena
against, that's right, the hail mary, something the obama campaign is trying to do here in wisconsin. >> i like that football metaphor. i don't usually follow them all that closely. but thank you, brianna. appreciate it. little bit of a rough morning. traffic was terrible for you. >> yes. >> plus that three person rule. >> we had to drive around brooklyn, pick up cnn employees to hit the carpool rule. >> what a mess. thank you for being here. >> thanks for tolerating my lateness. >> we had an empty chair in honor of you. >> today is the day. >> let's bring in senator robert m menendez. there was a tour with the president and chris christie, taking a look at some of the really hard-hit areas along the coast. the senator joins us this morning. thank you for being with us. we appreciate it. one of the spots that you toured along with governor christie, along with president obama. describe for me what you saw. that area really hard hit. >> yeah. it was really hard hit, soledad. it had all of these boats that had been wash add shore into people's homes, sometimes three and four into a person's
dead-even right now which we've seen in a number of polls. both the romney-ryan ticket and obama-biden ticket, tied 46-46. this is a squeaker, folks. that number really has not changed much over the last 30 days. when we break that down among independent voters which is a lot of focus is on, you have governor romney ahead of this key voting bloc by 7%. as you can see president obama made gains with independents since october as well. his number has gone from 32 to 39. let's bring in some of our favorite experts, doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton. monica crowley, radio talk show host and both are fox news contributors. five days to go, this thing is so tight. if people aren't talking about sandy they're talking about who they think will win this thing. quick initial thought from you both and then i want to cruise through some of these polls. doug, where do we stand? >> oh, i think we are suggest that we're in a tie. the swing state data showing ever so slight obama lead, within the margin of error. ohio couple points up. through the midwest, wisconsin, michiga
be a bad thing if president obama were re-elected? >> i think it sets us back that his ideas are wrong for the future. they are not the right ideas to get us moving forward. if he word processor to be re-elected -- and it's not going to happen -- we are not going to have the economic groakt that we need or expect. i don't think we will get a plan to save medicare. i don't think we will have a pro-american energy policy. it is not just the things -- bad things that might happen, it's the good things that won't happen. it's the busy things that will have to wait. i don't think we can wait four years for some of these things. >> greta: some republicans are sort of getting critical that there is not attention from the candidates or the party on the road about benghazi and the attack on the consulate. is that something that should be spoken about by your party, as we appreciate election day? or not? >> we have. i think there was a great piece by senators mccain, graham and johnson about unanswered questions. there are going to be hearings when we get back. i spoke on that last week and wond
of liberty. president obama is being briefed on the storm right now. he is expected to make a statement later this hour. we'll bring it to you live when that happens. and some other news this morning. new york city's mayor michael bloomberg just announced public schools will be closed again tomorrow. >> travel is not going very well at all anywhere in the country today because of the problem here on the east coast. amtrak has cancelled all northeast service more than 8600 flights have been cancelled as well. let's go to tom costello as reagan national airport with more on that side of the story. tom, good morning again. >> reporter: good morning. this is the way airports look in this particular area of the country that is getting hit by sandy. you can roll a bowling ball down there and not hit anybody. it's that way at reagan national airport, dulles and many others along the east coast. i want to tell you we just got word from the authority authority in new york, new jersey that they have reports of flooding up on to the runways at laguardia airport and we've heard that may be happening at j
on halloween so police and first responders could practice on those people. all right? ali over to you. >> alisyn: that's kind of scary. the latest gdp report shows only 2% growth and with the unemployment rate at 7.8%, is this the economic recovery that president obama had promised? we're back now with our political panel to take a closer look at some of the numbers. 2.0% gdp growth and better than expected. >> it's very poor. over the last 115 year the average has been 3.25% and low in comparison and don't be bamboozled by the number. in fact, it was fueled by enormous federal government spending. the president is literally shovelling the money out of the white house. private sector growth was 1.3%, a minuscule 1.3%, and the money that the federal government spent, some of it was defense, but a lot of it went for very preposterous wasteful things like community transformation grants, to organizations in south l.a. that do one-on-one street education, or 1.3 billion dollars to insurance co-opes that have a 35 to 40% expected default rate. >> alisyn: got it. >> so this is wasteful mone
of a new ad that the obama campaign is releasing today, wolf. >> all right. we'll stay in close touch, jessica yellin out on the campaign trail covering the president in these final five days. governor romney's also back in full campaign mode. he's not pulling any punches. his new line of attack, jim acosta will have that next. dad vo: ok, time for bed, kiddo. lights out. ♪ (sirens) (train horn) ♪ vo: wherever our trains go, the economy comes to life. norfolk southern. one line, infinite possibilities. >>> mitt romney is himself back in full campaign mode today in virginia. here's cnn's national political correspondent jim acosta. >> reporter: wolf, the truce is over. after dialing back his criticism of president obama in the immediate aftermath of superstorm sandy, mitt romney has shifted back into campaign mode. and the gop candidate has unleashed some new eye opening lines of attack. mitt romney turned battleground virginia into a battlefield ending a two-daybreak from the campaign's fireworks with some new verbal cannon shots aimed at winning the last five days of the race. >>
they think a government should respond to a disaster. we know what president obama's stance is because we have been watching him act on it right now in realtime in this crisis he has faced as president. his opponent governor romney proposed a very different way. he's argued that he essentially doesn't want a federal government role in disaster response. he made these remarks on the subject at a debate last year saying not only should we get rid of a federal disaster response, but maybe it should even just be taken over by private business. >> every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction and if you can go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. instead of thinking in the federal budget what we should cut, we should ask ourselves the opposite question, what should we keep? we should take all of what we're doing at the federal level and say what are the things we're doing that we don't have to do and those things we got to stop doing because we're borrowing $1.6 trilli
for president obama. why is he in minnesota, that is good question, right? >> you're forcing one of your biggest assets obviously bill clinton is, minnesota, a state ronald reagan didn't carry in 198 it tells you something. equally important you taken amajor asset away from the campaign being in florida, ohio today. so to me, there is no losing in trying to strategy. martha: i don't know if we have it, but there's a look at the race, i asked this morning, our brain room, where was carter-reagan in 1980 roughly today, at the end of october. there it is. it's amazing. jimmy carter was at 45%. this is national poll taken just days before the race. and ronald reagan was at 39%. what do you think about that? >> since i lived through it. martha: you sure did. >> i know it well. there were points reagan was ahead prior to that. what happened in those days when you can't make a perfect parallel a whole lot of democrats who switched in the end and that gave, ronald reagan got one out of four democrats in 1980. i think he got 27%. that is obviously not going to happen this time. the positive news as we go
election day, that's right, one week, president barack obama and governor mitt romney are suspending their campaigns for today. president obama is at the white house, and is monitoring the impact and response to superstorm sandy. aide force governor mitt romney say if anything, he will take part am some sort of relief effort. the federal government is shut down again today, but the labor department says friday's big jobs report will still be released on schedule. >> hard to believe that the election is next week. >> obviously, we were all consumed with it, and in the last few day, we have been dealing with this storm. but we will be back to it i'm sure tomorrow or thursday. >> there we go. >> uh-huh. >> good morning. >> we're still not out of the woods with this. the impact of the storm is just absolutely amazing. so we are going to get right to it and let people know exactly what is going on. let's look at the infrared satellite shot of what was hurricane sandy. now it is actually about 90 miles west of philadelphia. but you know what? take a look at the wide area still being impact
right ahead, sandy has both president obama and governor romney standing down on the politics with the presidential race exactly one week away. they have canceled their public events today and friday's all-important jobs report might be delayed. we'll talk about the storm's impact on the race and the economy with chuck todd and cnbc's jim cramer just ahead. >> a quick note for you. we're sad to say that due to sandy we will not be having our halloween celebration on the plaza tomorrow, so if you were planning to join us out here in costume, we want you to stay home, stay safe. we will get that done at some other point. things are more important. >> they are indeed. you'll have to put the ponte hose away for another year. get the latest on the storm, the record flooding we've seen in lower manhattan. let's get to natalie morales in battery park city in the southern tip of mat hannan. natalie, good morning to you again. >> reporter: good morning to you, savannah, once again. we're fully now beginning to realize the devastation of sandy. as you have mentioned in the reporting, at
to the problem. the public's a bit adrift right now and trying to decide, obama has not been a failure as president, he's not been great, he's not been a failure. is he mediocre? a little better than mediocre? is he somewhere near great? people will disagree on that, but nobody's arguing the issue is in play. romney's been a very effective candidate lately, very effective, and he got rid of his opponents, smashed them to nothing. i think he's got a great team around him. i think the president's team is too small, a little bit narrow and isolated to put it lightly. but i tell you, obama does have that amazing luck. and here's a guy that ran for the senate against two or three opponents who all dropped out because of marital problems. he walked into the united states senate, he was a celebrity before he got there. he ran against hillary and had the war issue against her, beat her on the war issue, took on john mccain when he was really beaten down by then. and here he is facing romney who is a very tough opponent. so this is going to be a close election. they're somewhat equally matched.
